Alan Bloomfield- Specialist Digital Advisor
November 18, 2020
With over thirty years working for a Major Blue-Chip FTSE 100 Telecommunications Provider, I have extensive experience ranging from hands on Engineering, Operations management and IT Consultancy in PBX and Network Telecommunications. Specialisms include Mitel, Nortel, Avaya and Cisco accreditation along with CI, Lean, Project (Prince 2) and Sales Management experience.
I have successfully implemented a £9.2m Digital Transformation of the Coventry and Warwick University Pilot, this transformed the “Learning journey” for the students from a “paper based” experience to a very dynamic “virtual journey”
I am now the Specialist Digital Business Advisor in Stafford and Stoke Chamber, where I am using my technical expertise and ability to build relationships with key partners and clients and offer specialist guidance and support in the Digital Transformation journey that we are about to embark on.
The UK telecommunications voice and data network by 2025 will be moving from a traditional mixture of copper and fibre network to a fully embedded and integrated IP Platform. This will transform the speed and diversity in which business will interact, for those who do not make the most of the journey will be left behind.
My role as Specialist Digital Business Advisor is to help and support businesses in making this journey, exploiting digital opportunities to grow businesses by working collaboratively with the growth hub for any funding available and our local businesses to help drive the local prosperity.
